When the Detroit Auto Show comes about next month, expect to see an updated 911 sporting a roof panel, but don’t call it a convertible.
Ruf has just released their newest creation, a 911 Porsche Roadster inspired by Porsche’s 1967 911 Targa. The Ruf Roadster comes fully equipped with an integrated roll cage for extra safety and chassis reinforcement to go along with the versatility of open air driving.
Powered by the six-cylinder boxer engine that pushes out 400-hp, Ruf’s Roadster has been well thought out giving the driver plenty of options to enjoy their sports coupe. You can either opt to drive the vehicle completely closed, completely open, with a closed roof and opened rear window or open roof and closed rear window.
The lower rear window is made of a three layer polyglass with an electric motor to keep it air tight. The removable roof is comprised of two carbon fiber pieces.
Options for the Porsche Roadster include a dual clutch gearbox and four wheel drive. The car is also outfitted with Ruf’s styling kit, which we absolutely love, and 19-inch wheels.
Pricing starts at an impressive $275,000 excluding tax.
